3 Original 1959 Vintage Theatrical Movie Lobby Cards (LCs; measure 11" x 14" [28 x 36 cm]) (Learn More)

Chikyu Boeigun (released in the U.S. in 1959 as "The Mysterians"), the 1957 Ishiro Honda Japanese Toho battling gigantic robot science fiction (sci-fi) thriller ("'The Mysterians are coming! To destroy our cities, to take our women, to enslave us all!'"; "From behind the moon they come... To invade the earth! Abduct its women! Level its cities"; "in Big Screen Color"; "Greatest science-fiction picture ever conceived by the mind of man"; "Electronic war erupts from outer space!"; "Who can say it will not happen?"; "Amazing! Terrifying! Fantastic!"; "See Demons from the darkness behind the moon who top our every top secret! See The master race that smashed the atom before we saw the light of day! See Love-hungry space men abduct Earth's women that they themselves might survive!") starring Kenji Sahara, Yumi Shirakawa, Momoko Kochi, Akihiko Hirata, and Takashi Shimura. Note that this movie was apparently initially released in the U.S. by RKO, but RKO was having great financial difficulties at this time, and it seems that MGM took over the U.S. release while the movie was still in first release, and that they possibly also had released the movie in English-speaking countries outside the U.S. prior to taking over the U.S. release from RKO. We have had original release posters and lobby cards from both studios (the posters and lobby cards are identical except for the change in studio information). Oddly, we have sold a window card, a half-sheet, and an insert that have both studios' names on it! Most collectors seem to accept both RKO and MGM posters as "first release". NEW INFORMATION! We have been informed by an expert collector/dealer that he believes that RKO went broke during the initial release of this movie, and that MGM took over the distribution during the first release, which would mean that, depending on how you look at it, either both studios' posters are first release, or that the RKOs are the technical first release and that the MGMs are a same-year re-release. If anyone knows more about the distribution of this movie, and these posters, please e-mail us and we will post it here.

Condition: good to very good. Each has creases and tears of varying lengths (approximately 1/2" or less) around the edges and some light scuffing throughout.
